Seven shows pop over one million viewers offering a pretty tight primetime for Seven and Nine. The Block Sky High (3rd – 1,242,000) & House Rules (6th – 1,093,000) both hold their timeslots, as does Packed to the Rafters (5th – 1,134,000). MasterChef Australia (15th – 715,000) struggles to maintain a viewing audience live but does OK with catchup through the week. The move of Celebrity Apprentice (Challenge: 19th – 633,000; Boardroom: 17th – 672,000) to 8:30pm doesn’t help it build its audience.
Timeslot winners (nationally):
6:00pm: Nine News – Ch9
6:30pm: A Current Affair – Ch9
7:00pm: The Block Sky High – Ch9
7:30pm: House Rules – Ch7
